Seattle isn't offering him another 10-day because they want to play young guys.

Austin is out for maybe the year. We never know when Pollard can play. Jeff hasn't exactly been "Cal Ripkin" when it comes to durability.

While I like it that Danny is getting all the minutes he can handle, we desperately need another big guy on the bench in case of any injury at all.

My guess is they're just going to wait 2-3 weeks for JO.

We should clearly just release Jermaine, sign Shawn Kemp and Rodman

and trade for olowokandi, i mean trade tins for olowokandi

just let jackson run point guard and let him call the plays too

that is what we should do

Actually if the Pacers signed Marcus Fizer he would be eligable for the playoffs. He played on no nba team this season before the March 1st deadline. If you played and were waived then signed after the March 1st you are ineligable. That why Tim Thomas had to be signed before March 1st because he had been on the active roster before that date as a Bull.

But Zendon Hamilton would not be able to play in the playoffs because he played I think in Cleveland earlier this season. Dennis Rodman (god forbid) would be eligable tho.

He was signed with Seattle AFTER the march 1 deadline.

Once you are with a team after march 1 you are no longer playoff-eligebele after you get cut. Thats why they have the deadline.

Doesn't matter to me one bit if he's eligible for the playoffs or not; we'd be signing him to fill in the gap while we wait for JO or Croshere (probably just JO now) to come back.

No he signed after March 1st is why he is eligable, because he had not been on an nba roster before that date- waived players must be signed before that date .

The Pacers could bring in a player from the CBA, ABA, Europe or a player like Keon Clark who has not played in the nba this season or been on the roster and they are eligable to play in the playoffs.

But any player who has been waived and played this season or was on the roster but did not play during the regular season in the nba is ineligable if signed after March 1st. Thats the way the rule reads .

Tony Delk had not played but was on the Hawks roster all season is why the Pistons had to sign him by March 1st.

You're wrong on so many levels.

The rule is this:

-If you are on a roster after march 1, that is the ONLY roster you will be playoff-eligible for, period.

SO many poeple screw up this rule, even most beat-writers.

That's the rule. Period. Fizer is playoff elibele for Seattle, but if he's vut he would NOT be for Indiana.

Tony Delk meanwhile, was cut before march 1, so he could have signed at ANY point and been able to be on a playoff roster.

Frankly, I don't want him either way.

I'd like to have him just to fill in while we're waiting for JO.

We're one twisted Hulk ankle away from seeing Granger spend time at Center.

With Peja at PF and Gill at SF. See, you think this isn't all by design? :chin:

Look, man, you keep trotting that line out and I'm tired of it. It's much more likely that Gill would play the 2 and Freddy would play the three.

There mu$t be a rea$on that TPTB don't get u$ $ome fill in help to take $ome pre$$ure off the remaining big$ while our injury depleted ro$ter heal$. Otherwi$e, we ri$k playing player$ into the ground and having an EXTREMELY bare cupboard if $omeone else goe$ down.

I have no idea why TPTB don't addre$$ thi$. I just can't figure what their rea$oning might be. It doe$n't make $en$e to thi$ commoner.

You know you're injured when you're begging for Fizer to be signed.

Yeah, but if Scot Pollard stays hurt and either Jeff Foster or David Harrison gets hurt, Granger becomes the PF/backup C with Peja as his backup PF.

That's not something I'm comfortable with right now.

If I thought Cro would come back at all and if I thought JO would be ready in a week or two I'd say "why bother" but we are talking about a 10-day contract here for a bit-minutes only-in-case-of-injury guy.

JO is due back sometime this week; perhaps next at the latest now.

That's what Jermaine says. Players always want to come back early, and since the rumor last week was that he might sit out the rest of the regular season, I am worried.

I also would like more depth in the admittedly unlikely event that we are involved in a blowout win against a bad team (chuckle, chuckle) or even a blowout loss, we can put someone out there in the 4th quarter other than Eddie Gill who is, shall we say, "expendable".
